New Tuesday New Broken Microsoft Updates – KB4103713 & KB4130978
0 (0)

So it looks like Microsoft have done it yet again! Yes more updates have been causing us problems and we have had to go through a number of user machines uninstalling two more updates to fix broken computers.

It is quite unbelievable that Microsoft continue to release updates that break our user machines! This seems to be happening on a weekly basis for the last few months.

So after much investigation and another wasted days work, we found two more Microsoft Updates seem to be causing all our issues.

Problem Updates

KB4103713 – Known issues in this update:

Symptom Workaround
A stop error occurs on computers that don’t support Streaming Single Instructions Multiple Data (SIMD) Extensions 2 (SSE2). Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
Microsoft is aware that some customers have reported that network drivers are intentionally uninstalled, then fail to reinstall after applying the May 8, 2018 update. This can result in the loss of network connectivity. Microsoft is presently investigating and will provide a status update when the investigation is complete.

KB4130978 – There is not an awful lot of information out there in regards to fix update having broken anything and Microsoft have not confirmed an issue. However, we were getting reboot loops on some Windows 7 machines when this update was installed.

Microsoft have only stated that they are working on a fix for these dodgy updates and will release fixes once they have them.

So, if you are still experiencing any weird issues with your machines, take a stab at removing these and see if it helps.
